Frisco, TX (PRWEB) September 10, 2007
John Gay, CFP®, a financial planner in Frisco, Texas (a suburb of Dallas near Plano, McKinney, and Allen) has launched a blog, Christian Money Talk (http://www.christianmoneytalk.com), devoted to all areas of personal finance with an emphasis on Christian (i.e., bible-based) principles.
"In the past, several well-known authors and advisors (notably Larry Burkett, Randy Alcorn, Howard Dayton, and Ron Blue) have written extensively on the subject of scriptural principles of money. Similarly, there are a number of great radio shows that cover the subject. There seems to be a void, however, in the Christian finance space in the blogosphere," says Gay.
Christian Money Talk addresses all areas of financial planning from a biblical standpoint including debt, cashflow, lifestyle, materialism, worldview, retirement, insurance, taxes, estate planning, and investing. John draws on his personal experience advising hundreds of Christians on these subjects. The blog also draws other great related content from notable authors, advisors, speakers, and pastors from across the internet.
"There are over 2,350 biblical verses related to money, possessions, and stewardship--more than almost any other topic. Christians want to be good stewards of the financial resources to which God has entrusted them, but often they don't know where to start. Frequently they need help understanding what the scriptures say on the subject, and then guidance in making changes so that their lives are in line with the Lord's plan for them," says Gay.
Readers can subscribe to Christian Money Talk in several ways: via a feedreader, a weekly e-mail containing all posts from the previous month, an e-mail for each new post, or by merely visiting the website at the reader's convenience.
"One of the best things about a blog is the ability for readers to comment on posts," says Gay. "It provides a great community for discussion and fellowship-- exactly the environment in which the bible should be studied."
Recent blog posts include: Are you wearying yourself to gain wealth?, What is a donor-advised fund?, Crown CEO Howard Dayton to transition leadership, Individual stocks equal unrewarded risk, What's in an average?, and Roth IRAs: Time trumps taxes.
